February Fun Tournament

February Fun Tournament

Announcing the February Fun Tournament!  The free to enter tournament will be held on Saturday, February 18th, in Durland Expansion room 1116, and will feature League of Legends, Overwatch, Hearthstone, Super Smash Bros. Melee, Smash 4, Rocket League, and CS:GO.  All players will register solo and teams (for the team based games) will be created based on players ranks in the respective game.  The goal is to create the most balanced teams possible in order to give everyone an equal chance to win.  The tournaments for Smash and Hearthstone will be unaffected by this, and be played in double elimination format.  All tournament formats and brackets will be fully decided, and are subject to cancellation if there is not enough expressed interest.  Players are encouraged to bring their own gaming peripherals such as controllers, mouse, keyboards, and headset. (FYI: some computers have weird audio and require a USB headset instead of a traditional headphone jack).  We will also be having a raffle for all players who enter any of the tournaments for the games we will be playing.  The raffle will consist of items that we will be getting from Tespa which consist of various goodies such as: Winston plushies, water bottles, bottle openers, T-shirts, and more.  Additionally, anyone who says they are going to the event on our Facebook Page will receive an additional raffle ticket towards the grand prize raffle.  For additional info and sign up forms for the various tournaments, please look below.
